Jack was not only an amazing and caring uncle, but a mentor, teacher and friend. He was so much a part of my growing up...along with Aunt Mary. They took me on many adventures...and showered me with love and care when I was young, and mentored me when I got older. I could always count on my Uncle Jack's wise and relevant advice...i will truly miss his kindness, wisdom and love.
